Wolverine and Me

I sort of stumbled upon these boots about a year ago (thanks to my husband) and honestly, they're the best boots I've ever owned. They are Wolverine.

I talked about them in a previous post ◄and since then, my list grows with another five (of Wolverines) I want to acquire.

They sell mens and womens boots and also fun other womens shoes and boots. Seriously, if I'm being honest, I might take one of each of everything.

This week, though I don't normally like to give reason to wear down some of my favorite shoes, I had to wear these beauties along my coastal trekking.

Wolverines fit right into the Pacific Northwest scenery, like they were meant for this place.

Like here ...





And here ...





And here ...






And here, too ... wait. No, not here. Here, I'm in my socks. And comfy.
(Boots ARE in the background though ... and so is beer).






Like here... Okay, this time - I know. This time, I HAD to deal with a pair of Red Wings. But, they kind of go well together. Especially these ones. (Sshhh. Don't tell Wolverine!)

(Btw, I'm wearing a vintage Levi's denim jacket here and new Levi's denim jeans here. Love blending the new and old!)




I've come to the conclusion that Wolverines go really well with coffee and the outdoors.

Clearly, I love the right boots.

Vintage Dresses for Spring

It's that time of year already! Not sure how -- that whole time warp thing is in serious high gear because the last six months have been a blur.

Time to start thinking about Spring. Which means Spring dresses! And for you vintage lovers, I can't find enough of them.
 
 

Like this beauty, a sage green sleeveless shift dress:

 

 

 
Or this amazing yellow maxi dress:
 
 
 




And there's this gorgeous 50s Polka Dot dress. Not yet up in the shop, but will be!

Vintage Mugs │ Vintage Coffee

It's not an addiction if I can admit that I have it, right?

Like my sweater addiction, I have an absurd addiction to vintage mugs. This began years ago when I began collecting vintage Fire King dinner ware and dishes.

I drink from Fire King, or one of my other vintage mugs, every day.

And I'm not the only one who has a thing for mugs. Sometimes, you find THE one that fits perfectly to your lips, makes the coffee (or tea) taste better, and you wouldn't trade it for any other.

I feel this way about Fireking.

When I hop into thrift stores to find vintage clothing, a couple times a week, I inevitably  meander over to the mugs.

Okay, the mug section of all thrift stores are hilarious. You have the outcast mugs, the ones maybe only one person wants, the ones that are chipped, the ones that are cracked, the mug from the trip to Arizona, the mug from Disney World. The hand made mugs to the cheap, ugly-as-heck mugs.

The mugs from Pottery Barn, to the mugs from Target. I've seen them all.

But, these vintage 70s and 80s etched ones, or the pottery ones, are what get me. I sell them in my shop. But as of late, I end up picking them up for myself. And sneak them into my overflowing cupboard.

I know my husband has found it when he says, "When did we get this one?" Actually, he's stopped saying that. And for good reason.

It'll never end.

 
This is kind of how my week goes with my mug problem ...
 
 
"Oh look, I just sold this one today!" (I did.)

                                        

 

 
 
 
"Oh look, I just picked this up today!" (I did)






"Oh look, this is what I picked up yesterday!" (OMG, I did!)
 
 





This is my favorite shelf in my cupboard -- the top shelf, shelf. Yeah, those mugs are that special. Away from the kids, away from flying food, away from me, even. I mean, I can barely reach them.






The wine glasses are up there, too. Kind of an important shelf.
 
But geez, I love them (mugs and wine glasses.) I may or may not sell the ones I found today... crap.
 
I have a few left in my shop here ◄ Only a few, because I haven't replenished...
 
because I'm using them!
 
UPDATE 6 days after post. This happened ↓
 
 
 
This was seriously my favorite mug.
Well, ONE of my favorites.
I totally understand the crazy infatuation with the perfect mug.
Especially when it's gone.

Sweater Love │ 25% off all Sweaters

I literally have an addiction to sweaters. I own a lot of them. And they sit on my shelves staring at me, waiting to be worn.

Which is incredibly ironic because I live in California. Northern. Which means we do get some seasons.

But, not the season that warrants wearing these wonderful woolly things regularly. It doesn't seem right.

I buy mostly for my shop. But because of that, I habitually buy them, even when I don't need any more for the store.


So I buy ones like this:




And this:


And coats like this:


 
And I don't have room for these. I really don't. I'm bursting at the seams.
 
Which is never pretty.
 
And I have tons (okay,  more than one) of men's sweaters and coats, too.
 
So, that's why I'm having a 25% off all sweater and coats sale. Go here ◄ and check it out!

I need to clear all my Winter inventory to make room for Spring and Summer wear.

Get these awesome deals before they're gone!
